These days, values like showing up on time, doing what you say you will, starting what you finish, and saying please and thank you may seem old fashioned, but they are integral to creating trust with our investors, tradespeople and tenants. These values are embraced by our whole team and used to deliver an amazing experience for everyone we work with. We’re a small team of dedicated people who have chosen to be great, instead of big.

By 2011 he had acquired four more buildings in Toronto. In the following years he bought four more properties along the path of the developing Eglinton Crosstown LRT, and one in Mimico before moving west, buying three properties in Hamilton in 2018.
